BRIER — An accidental kitchen fire on Tuesday caused more than $60,000 in damage to a house.
A woman in the two-story home on the 22300 block of 33rd Place W reported the flames at 2:40 p.m. She got out safely.
Crews from Fire District 1 extinguished the fire. No one was injured.
“Damage was confined to the area around the stove and the cabinets above,” said Leslie Hynes, a fire district spokeswoman.
Investigators determined the fire started in pans of cooking oil left unattended on the stove.
